I am making a new computer mostly for gaming, but here and there I will be using it for listening to music, surfing the internet, and doing homework. I am fairly new at building a computer(this is gonna be my first one that I will be building ) and I need some advice on parts. I pretty much have everything to build it(I bought a DIY Full Bundle newegg is offering), but I have to buy a new motherboard cause new egg gave me a faulty one .
Here is the link to the combo build: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?I... (minus the motherboard) I also plan to overclock the cpu around 4.0-4.5ghz and I wanted to know what would be a recommended ghz amount for a computer that will be on 24/7? (I might turn it off here and there, but I usually just keep it since I don't like waiting for it to turn back on)
I might buy a HAF 912 because reviews from google search say that the Rosewill Challenger is a small case for what I am gonna be doing with my rig. I will also be buying a after market CPU cooler for my overclocking. I plan on getting this cpu cooler IF I don't buy that haf 912.... http://www.frys.com/product/6799935?site=sr:SEARCH:MAIN... . (IF I do buy that haf 912 what cpu cooler would you guys recommend)
P.S. My build will also consists of different items which I will post links too below.
I plan on placing a 200mm fan in the front(intake) and another on the top panel (exhaust). This will leave me a extra stock fan since they give you one for the front, I either will place it as a side panel or add it as a push/pull configuration for the cpu cooler. BTW I also have some questions about the Push/Pull if anyone can help me with. What does the push/pull configuration mean and does it give better cooling for a 24/7 overclocked cpu with the Hyper 212 evo? Which fan is push and which is pull? Should the stronger fan be push or pull? (images are appreciated! )
CPU FAN: I either will just use that stock OR get a different 120mm fan online. (Which ones would you guys recommend)
Monitor: ViewSonic LED 1080p FULL HD 23 inch monitor and a DELL 19 inch monitor (YES DUAL MONITORS! )
Keyboard/Mouse: Logitech MK320 Keyboard and Mouse wireless.
Fan Controller: Should I get a fan controller with just these fans or pass? If I do get a fan controller which ones are recommended?
This is pretty much all the parts I will be getting, I will edit it if I add/remove any parts.
Thank you to everyone who would even bother reading this "essay" just to help a noob like me . All answers are appreciated good OR bad they will help me with my knowledge of computers.
P.S.S.S: (that's a lot of S's ) I will only be having a 650 watt antec green earth power supply. Should I upgrade the psu OR take any parts off my rig OR will it be a sufficient amount of power for my rig?
I wouldnt get a fan controller. Also your psu wattage is fine for your system. If newegg gave you a faulty motherboard, most likely they will replace it with a new one.
I wouldnt buy a new case as you are saving 45 dollars with that combo, and the case in that combo is 50... so you will be losing $5+ the haf 912 case. Resulting in you paying way more money than you needed to.
The aftermarker heatsink you bought will most likely not fit in the rosewill challenger.
I wish you made a post before you bought the "bundle". So i could have helped you more(what case,fans,video card,etc.).
I wish I knew about this website before I bought that combo, but I already bought it so i guess this will be a pretty good first rig. Main purpose was to play my skyrim at ultra 1920x1080p also get a little of overclocking here and there. Next rig which will be probably after this rig breaks (long time) Ill come back to these forms and ask what recommendations I should get. How much of an overclock do you think I'll be able to get with this setup?
Hyper 212+ same size as evo so I think it will fit. Do you think overclocking would increase performance on Skyrim? I asked a youtuber who makes 1920 x 1080p skyrim gameplays and he pretty much has the same exact specs as me except for the mobo and he said that I will be able to run it on ultra without overclocking also he mentioned I wouldn't see any difference in fps if I overclocked higher is this true?
Thank you dontqqnub for helping me with my questions seeing as your the only one that replied to this thread. I have built my computer and currently playing skyrim ultra 1920x1080p . My CPU is currently at stock voltage, but I plan to oc it later on. And also the Hyper 212 + and EVO DO fit inside the Rosewill Challenger Case. I will be posting pictures of my system later on this month just to show my first (successful) built computer.
